Training projects already funded by CITB
Pathways into Construction
Abbey Access Training successfully secured CITB Pathways into Construction funding to help engage and progress 300 individuals into Construction over the next 3 years.
The project has been designed to help employers overcome skills shortages, recruitment issues and staff turnover, providing ready qualified and experienced staff.
The 3 stages of the project will provide qualifications, training, skills and a 4-week placement for individuals seeking to work in construction. It will provide employers with the chance to work with individuals and see how they fit with the organisation.
Employers interested in finding out more about the project and / or wishing to offer a work placement opportunity should contact Gail Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org
